The Botswana Technical Education Programme (BTEP) is managed by the Department of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (DTVET) in the Ministry of Education and Skills Development. BTEP is outcomes-based and is designed to provide both, pre-employment training for secondary school leavers and, training for those in the workplace who aspire towards attaining a qualification. The programme has been developed in cooperation with employers to ensure a match between training and skills needed by industry. BTEP consists of 25 vocational areas at 4 levels, Foundation, Certificate, Advanced Certificate and Diploma.

One of the vocational areas is Hairdressing & Beauty Therapy. In order to expand access to TVET in Botswana, staff from Francistown College of Technical and Vocational Education and Gaborone Technical College developed print based distance learning modules. DTVET has committed to produce open education resources and has made three Certificate level modules available.
